concern for the united states. and then it seems to falter for a number of reasons. it appears that progress is made but then when it goes back to iran, the deal that was worked out falls apart. was this planned on the part of the iranian government? or was this truly just some sort of miscommunication by those who were in geneva and said, yes, we can do this, and it gets back to tehran, it doesn't work. >> yeah, i don't think i would bury that proposal. it's still ongoing. the suggestion -- >> you think this is still open? >> still open. initially, iran actually accepted the u.n./u.s. proposal, which was enrichment would be taking place in russia, in france. then they backed away from that. but -- >> just to remind people, this is so that the nuclear material, in theory, would not be then able to be used in some sort of weapon. >> right. it would be enriched abroad and then given to iran in limited amounts for medical purposes. and iran originally accepted that. then when it went to tehran, there was obviously, behind closed doors, division. they rejected that. >> are we suppo
-by-case basis. we spoke to one couple who adopted children and today dozens more arrived in the united states. the latest from jonathan hunt and the assistant secretary of state joins us live in 2 1/2 minutes. ún >> shepard: more from haiti and a update on a story we've been following, a orphanage with over 100 children, some waiting for adopt active parents in the united states are hungry and dehydrated. jonathan hunt has been reporting from the orphanage in port-au-prince and is live with the latest. hi, jonathan. >> reporter: shep, we got word about two hours ago there may be looters targeting this orphanage, the house of the children of god we reported from extensively over the last couple days. we rushed down to see if that was true. i'm happy to report it's not. the 135 babies and children here are all safe. for now. they still have know protection. there are still no haitian cops stationed outside this orphanage. in fact there are very few cops on the streets of port-au-prince at all, another sign of the almost total collapse of the haitian government. all three branches of the govern
to be in haiti at the time of the disaster. crowds have lined up at the united states embassy in an effort to get out and they are not the only ones. >> if you are haitian mother with a valid visa, raise your hands, please. >> shepard: many showing identification papers and telling stories of the horrors they witnessed over the past week. as you might imagine, travel is still restricted about the bulk of airport activity reserved for delivery of aid supplies. we have been reporting on the united states military response to the crisis in haiti. you heard about the troops expected to be in or near the area by the end of today. tonight we are getting more concrete numbers about the effort. according to the white house. the united states has 33 helicopters flying in haiti with 15 more on the way. the navy and coast guard have five ships in the region thus far and crews have delivered nearly 90,000-pounds of cargo include gd food, water and medicine. all good news but it will not go very far with millions of people trying to stay alive. so the pentagon says it is trying to ramp up its work. military c
and reconstruction of how we deliver primary secondary education in the united states. and that's exactly what this panel is going to be discussing. very interesting papers on exactly that point by john chubb and steve wilson. and two inspired discussants. and without further ado, let me just say the presenters have 12 minutes each, the discussants 10 minutes each and if everybody is brisk we will have time for some conversation and discussion. take it away, john chubb. >> good morning. this morning and in the first panel you heard about mostly operational savings. now we're going to switch to the topic of educational opportunities. the country for the last two years has been going through the worst recession since the great depression. and every industry has been under enormous, enormous pressure to change. education is not unique in that regard. i want to start with an example. to illustrate this. the state of hawaii, like many other -- every other state in the nation has been under enormous pressure to try to deal with its budget gaps. it came to the decision last summer that it would balan
the united states and japan, between the foreign minister and secretary clinton. they're really starting to cement their relationship. i can sense the chemistry and the trust developing between the two. that's deeply gratifying. in addition, the secretary gave a speech really outlining -- to interact with asia when it comes to its fledgling international organizations. and so even though the trip was abriefiated, i think we got quite a bit of work done. as p.g.a. indicated, this is today we're marking the 50th anniversary of the u.s.-japan security alliance, the security partnership. it's no exaggeration to say that it has been the cornerstone and the foundation of everything that we've managed to accomplish over the course of the last few generations inin asia. and we hear this not just from japanese friends but throughout the region. over the course of the last couple of months, as the united states and japan worked together on a series of challenging matters, one of the things that's been most interesting and gratifying is how much we hear from other countries in the region, from sout
a republican when it reelected ed brook to the united states stat in 1972 and the last time it voted for a republican in an open race was 1966. barack obama carried the state by six points. -- 26 points, excuse me, two years ago and i suspect that we may see brown get elected by three or five or six points. >> bill: what are you basing your prediction on? >> just looking at all of the polls. i'm a skill skeptical of insider advantage at 9 points. all the polls are moving in brown's direction and seems to be a consensus of four or five or six points but that is going to close up tomorrow. you touched son omaha ban on se reasons earlier. he is mingling with the people. she is an elitist. the last minute special interest deals have been stuffed in the held pill. is a bigger and broader narrative which is the people of massachusetts have seen all of the spending and deficit and all of the talk coming out of washington and are reacting in a highly negative fashion. not just one issue. it is a multiplicity of issues and the manner in which the administration and the congress have dealt wit
of us in the united states, we should just imagine something like katrina happening to the capital of the united states. god forbid. but it is this chaos. already this is the country, haiti, struggling to reach certain levels of development. that is why the united nations stabilization mission has been there. so it's a challenge already. they have suffered four hurricanes over the past few months. so to have this on top of everything, it's a shock to the system. they need all the help they can get right now. >> only a short time left. but i'm wondering, are you worried about other cities outside of the capital? >> yeah, i think leogane is a ty that we believe is 80% to 90% damaged. 40,000 population. further south to port-au-prince, jacmel. so, yes. the focus should not be on the capital city alone, we should think about other parts of the country. that is very, very important. >> thank you very much. >> my pleasure, martin. >>> of course, the destruction in haiti has been called one of the worst humanitarian crises in a generation. and it has generated extraordinary efforts to hel
and attention to the policies of freedom itself not only in the united states but around the world. for the first lecture we asked, is freedom for everyone? the speaker did so eloquently that our subsequent speakers have matched. we have heard from economic freedom, religious freedom, on whether the united nations advances the cause of freedom and the important relationship between security and freedom. advancing freedom is a major goal of the heritage foundation and important work that we do here. in fact tomorrow, we will release in hong kong and washington the 16th edition of the index of economic freedom. you will want to stay tuned because there is a bit of big and i'm afraid bad news in the index score for freedom in the united states. our speaker today is dr. charles krauthammer. on december 25, he described president obama's first year in office the year of living fec tilously. most of us know that he writes a column for the "washington post." less known is that he is a harvard educated medical doctor who was a resident of psychiatry at massachusetts general hospital. in 19
began to invade iraq. remember that? only a month later, the congress of the united states voted to allow president bush to invade and occupy iraq. we now are in a second phase of the gop propaganda blitz, and it is even worse this time. this time the folks in massachusetts are the target. i'm a texan, i'm a democrat from texas, a state where we don't have a single democratic statewide official, which is directly opposite massachusetts. if you vote against the democratic candidate today, you will be joining the republicans in their attempt to bring down this obama administration and possibly even the united states government. host: open but the houston chronicle," home state paper has this front-page story -- "the houston chronicle." host: raleigh, north carolina, jim on the republican line. caller: thank you. i would just have to counter fred's argument and say that perhaps this election is somewhat like the shot heard around the world, the first election where the american populace and the voters are going to stand up and say no to the obama socialism machine. i just watch with
the united states. 10, thou shalt not kill. well, i am speechless, all to your benefit. [laughter] i found myself so transformed by those lines. it was like stepping through a very meticulous mirror. thank you. [applause] >> thank you so much. this is rich material. i'm sorry we have to move rapidly. a minute and a half responses. a few questions i will raise. remember that you will have an opportunity to write down questions for me to raise as well. dr. butts, you're a student at morehouse in the 1960's. you attended some rallies and heard dr. king lecture. it is no wonder that you were deeply moved by his death. what do you find in the contemporary black community of the deep feelings that you have for dr. king? is that shared? is it fading? what is his legacy today in the african-american community? >> i think his legacy is strong, but the deep feeling i stared at that time concerning his life- and-death, i do not believe, except for those in my immediate age range or older or just a bit younger, are shared today. dominik people of all races do not know who dr. the kindle was -- many pe
of friends, but there would be an african- american running for president of the united states, that there would be a woman running for the presidency, that there would be a jewish museum in new york that had such a place of prominence, and that people of all faiths are coming to in humility and appreciation. for me, the relationship between fayed and social justice -- faith and social justice hinges on imaginationfaonith -- on imagination. faith this may be reality. it is a cheap. with work, with struggle, but it begins with vision. i think this is why it is the first four words of martin luther king's famous speech that resonate mostly with us. i have a dream. it is that ability first to be able to say that the reality that we are living in -- and when we talk about social justice, we're not talking about simple change. it is not a question of changing one relationship or one wall. deeply affecting the social structures, economic structures, all that at all different levels and regulations, municipalities, counties, laws, how many changes had to happen in society 40 years it
. the united states of america needs to get to the hotel montana and get our children now! >> reporter: the university group of 14 had come to distribute food to poor haitian people the day before the disaster. the missing students were in their rooms when it happened, the teachers in the gym. the eight who survived, most of whom were by the hotel's pool, have spoken about wanting to come back here for their teammates. >> after we hugged our parents and loved ones and felt safe, we were all like ready to go back, because we're missing two professors and four other students. >> reporter: the family of courtney hayes from georgia has traveled to the dominican republic looking for information and for their child in hospitals. the parents of britney gangel, who were originally told she had been found alive, only to then hear the heartbreaking truth, can only wait and know that rescuers here are trying to help answer their prayers. >> we need a miracle now. >> reporter: with more than 100 people thought to still be inside, this place now represents the destruction that has befallen families

are pouring in to haiti from the united states. a local doctor born in haiti is heading back to help perform surgery's. our reporter spoke with them tonight. she joins us live in the studio with the story. >> the doctor is an anesthesiologist at the medical center at st. joseph's. with the support of his association and using his own vacation time, he is making the trek back to help his homeland. this doctor was born in haiti but moved to the united states with his family a year later. he has other family members living there. when he heard the news of the earthquake, he tried to contact them immediately. >> we were finally able to hear from them, and they are all safe. it affects me a little bit more than that. >> he got together with a friend, and they put together a team of medical professionals who are taking their own vacation time to travel to haiti to help. packed up boxes of medical supplies to take with them. >> we want to bring our operating room to haiti. almost a week after the event, most of the crus injuries and the orthopedic trauma that has existed, we may be doing imputation
, is unmanageable. -- it is unimaginable. there would be a woman running for the president of the united states, that there would be a jewish museum in new york that has a place of prominence, and the people of all faiths are coming to it in humility and appreciation. for me, the relationship between faith and social justice hinges on the imagination. faith gives me the confidence that there are other things possible. there is a reality that is possible that is not fantasy, but it is aachievable with work and with a struggle. but it begins with a vision. i think that is why it is the first four words of martin luther king's famous speech that resonates mostly with us -- "i have a dream." to the will to say in that the reality that we are living in -- and when we're talking about social justice, we're not talking about simply change. it is not a question of changing one relationship or one law, but deeply affecting the social structure, economic structure, laws at all different levels, regulations, municipalities, counties, states, federal laws. how many changes had to happen in society 40 years
want the government to realize the message a that they are sending to every other united states citizen. when these kids come and they want to do mission programs and they go to their parents and say mom, dad, i want to reach out. i want to help across the world. i think that there's a real good chance here that the parents are going to say no way. look at what happened to those lynn university students. never came home. and nobody went there to help and we didn't give it our all. i think it is going to have a long-term effect on the state of our humanitarian missions in the future. >> john, i wonder if you might tell bus christine and how you imagine she is holding up and what she is thinking now. >> christine is a survivor. i think they are holding up fine. they know they are going to get saved. you know, all of these girls, you know, they are givers. they chose to go haiti. this was -- they could have done anything on this. they wanted to go. you know, they know they are coming home. we know they are coming home. we just need, as everyone said, we need the government to take over the
for them if he gets in the united states senate? he has no plan when it comes to health care. he wants to be like the rest of the jokers in the republican party and just be an obstructionist, say no to everything, start all over, of course. he wants to be the 41st vote against health care. now that's not what this election should be about. ted kennedy's wife, vicki, put it perfectly. >> ted always said, elections are about the future. they're about moving forward. they're about taking action. they're not about saying no. >> you know, that is so to the point. would you go out and vote because "i just don't like the way things are!" or would you go out and vote because you know what direction your candidate is going to take and what the agenda is going to be? saying no, saying no is what the republicans have done all year, it is what scott brown is going to do, be in lockstep with the mitch mcconnells of this world. they're all about destroying barack obama and change in washington. massachusetts, we're headed in the right direction with president obama's agenda. it is a heavy lift. but
in the united states, among the first of what might become a wave of young refugees from that devastated country, the military plane carrying them, along with pennsylvania governor ed rendell, touched down a short time ago at pittsburgh international airport. these pictures just into the fox news room of those young orphans de planing. they're the first being taken to children's hospital, pittsburgh -- pittsburgh, where they'll be examined, the kids have been under the care of two sisters from the pittsburgh area who managed to get word out to family members about their dire situation in haiti, their relatives contacted rendell's office for help cutting through red tape to bring them here. the children will be placed in group homes until adopgs are finalized. -- adoptions are finalized. jane: exactly one week now since the disaster struck in haiti, while the aid we're seeing it pour in, the crisis is far from over. i'm jane skinner along with jon scott. it's estimated now that 1.5 million people in haiti are now without homes. relief workers say looting, pockets of violence is making it tough to
the united states, but those within the outside or national community who have wanted the united states to engage those countries directly to at least see what can be achieved. new sanctions. they say that is a byproduct of the engagement and being tough on the north koreans. iran, the administration admits it has nothing to show for its engagement. there is no solid movement by the international community toward sanctions. the white house says it will continue to pursue both tracks, meaning dialogue and if that does not work sanctions. i talked to lee hamilton about the alternatives and maybe some of the conservative criticism. here's part of his response. >> what are the options? well, the options are the bombs away. i don't think many people think that is a very good option, particularly with regard to iran at the present time. talking is better than fighting. it is better to jaw, jaw, jaw, than to war, war, war, said churchill. i think that is pretty good advice. >> reporter: lee hamilton, a prominent foreign policy voice and early supporter of the n candidate obama. he also told me
-prince haiti. >> several plane loads of haitian orphans are beginning to arrive in the united states. many of these children, who were already orphans before the quake will find new lives here. and this is video of a group who arrived in pittsburgh early today. they will be placed in group homes until their adoptions are finalized. >>> the baltimore-based usns comfort could begin to see victims as as soon as today. the medical ship is due to arrive in haiti by friday and only on 9 news now, we will be able to take you on board the ship because scott broom right now has a look at some of the precious cargo on board. >> i'm scott broom on the u.s. navy hospital ship comfort on the way to haiti. a lot of the 750 people on board. they nonetheless wanted to have an impact on the mission of mercy. >> this is my daughter. >> dr. dan is a pediatrician who's really proud of his third grader at the stone ridge school of the sacred heart in bethesda. here's one reason why. a big box of stuffed animals she helped to collect at school when she heard her dad was shipping out. not just one box but an ent
is anything but american. >> we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the united states of america. >> yes, indeed. fundamentally transforming america. both republicans and democratic voters heard it now and snapped out of their slumber. if there is one thing that all americans from all political persuasions we can unite on is i don't really want to live in france. i think even michael moore agrees with that one. although, michael moore i think just doesn't want to us be like france because he thinks cuba would be better. but we all don't want to be like france. it's an insult for the people of massachusetts to react with shock because they put thought in their vote. maybe, maybe the reason why they are voting the way they are or seeming to be considering it is because they discovering who the candidates really are. last week when a journalist was pushed to the ground trying to ask her a question, whether or not it was on purpose, who knows. but coakley's response was telling. she claimed, "i'm not sure what happened. i know something occurred but i'm not privy to all of
the united states as a pretext to occupy haiti. when he found out the marines were arriving he said, quote, they are occupying haiti undercover. i believe we have tape. >> that's why i didn't drink the espresso. >> we should have had that translated. >> jim, is it what these cruise people -- what do you call them -- tourists? it would be better if it wasn't so close to disaster, isn't that what they are say ?g. >> yeah, they don't want it to infringe on their vacation. but to me it is about perception. the cruiseline is donating money for docking there. >> and they employ hatian. >> and they are bringing pallets of food. after 9/11, nobody criticized tourists foregoing to, no, we were happy. >> excellent point. mary you are looking like -- >> i so disagree. tourists came to new york, but they came months later. they didn't come like a week later when there was still the devastation going on. i don't know. it is like there is a grace period. yes, the cruise lines are doing great things, but it is in poor taste. i hate it. i think it is awful. >> i don't know. i think from a visual, like a -
as a humanitarian assistance and disaster relief mission that's what the united states military is here for. they are here as we all are at the invitation of the haitian government that knows they need help this airport is a perfect example. there's only one runway this is not i deal, thanks goodness it was not damaged if the quake knocked this runway out i don't know where we would be in terms of trying to help. we went to the haitian government. we said we were ready to help. they asked for our help. we negotiated an agreement so the u.s. military could get it open and prioritize the flights in and out. it is a small airport, but we've made it very busy and we've got to be sure people are safe coming in and out. >> greta: we have all these supplies, things like hospitals, we would like to help, does the united states have to work out agreements there? any sort of resistance, if we can help, we are hearing horrible stories? >> the haitians have said we need all the help we can get. it is getting to where the help is needed. setting up a facility, making sure it is well staffed and well equ

by the earthquake, they're beginning a new life in the united states. but back in haiti, many others are still desperate for a way out. and the changing economics of marriage. more men reaping the benefits of their wives' bigger paychecks. captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news world headquarters in new york, this is the "cbs evening news" with katie couric. >> couric: good evening, everyone. just a few short months ago, no one could have imagined it: the senate seat once held by john f. kennedy and then for decades by ted kennedy inn danger of going to a republican in the bluest of blue states. but that was the storyline going into today's special election in massachusetts. some recent polls show the republican scott brown pulling ahead of democrat martha coakley, once considered a shoe-in. one had brown with a four-point lead. if he wins, senate democrats would lose their supermajority, putting health care reform in serious jeopardy. nancy cordes is in boston tonight. nancy, this race has caught the democrats off guard, and now they are really scrambling. >> reporter: that's right, katie.
in the united states senate. >> thanksgiving weekend up in massachusetts. >> stand outside fenway in the cold. >> shake hands. >> you, too, can be a senator. >>> according to "the washington post," the fbi invoked false terrorism emergencies to illegally obtain more than 2,000 phone records during the bush administration. the bureau simply persuaded phone companies to turn their records over. a report says the fbi then issued approvaled after fact in order to justify their actions. >>> and with the late-night battle lines clearly drawn, team conan is taking its message to the streets. backed by a facebook phenomenon, fans of "the tonight show" staged rallies in four cities yesterday. conan made a personal appearance outside universal studios, even buying pizzas for hundreds of people standing in the rain. conan appears poised to leave nbc after he refused to move his show to a later time slot. meanwhile, jay leno who is set to take back his old show at the 11:35 start time says it all comes down to business. >> when the boss gives you a job and you don't do it well, i think we did a good job
disasters in other places, including the united states, hurricanes. we've seen the pattern before. there is that horrible shock when it happens. there's the grief over loss. but then as people realize that things aren't going to get back to normal, they get angry. and there are scenes. i have recorded them outside home depots when they're handing out ice in hurricanes in the gulf coast. some of this is human nature. this is horrible what people are living through here. i'm not going to make excuses for lawlessness, but at the same time when you're living with a constant smell of death around you, when you're thirsty, your family is missing, when you've not seen anyone from the government in your particular neighborhood -- i'll give you an example. i went to a town today about 15 miles west of port-au-prince that no one has visited. 90% of the homes we found -- flattened. people have buried their dead. they've recovered their dead. i saw a man, a father with his neighbors on the collapsed roof literally digging to find his 2-year-old daughter. before we had gotten there they had re
situation. this is not the united states. there's not the infrastructure that we would expect in the united states. the u.s. government is not responsible for, you know, the governing haiti and, yet, you know, there are ships offshore. there's a lot of expectation of aid and a lot of people are still dying. that is the bottom line, you know, at the end of every single sentence. people who don't need you are still dying. sanjay has seen the shortage up close. friday if you were watching the program, i hope you were, sanjay worked all night to care for more than two dozen patients in a field hospital. he was the only doctor remaining after a belgium medical team left the hospital because someone there had security concerns or the boss, the man in charge with them, had security concerns. some patients had just had surgery. sanjay's new team assisted that person. take a look at what happened friday. >> there is a patient here who had significant, what's called necrosis, where parts of her leg died as a result of crush injury. i'm trying to assess what's best for her. another patient over here h
to the president of the united states apparently now being quoted as pointing fingers at specific people. he does not only blame martha coakley for that fallout but the democratic senatorial campaign committee as well as potentially emanuel not blaming the president. others are saying the president has to assume some of this blame for letting health care reform get in the hands, the message at least, get in the hands of republicans. and the president allowing nancy pelosi to form health care reform and not having a lot of involvement in it until the bitter end. >> also people say tactically the ground game is slow to get out. they had the money but didn't put the operations. they got cocky about it. what does virginia, the resulting virginia, new jersey and, perhaps, massachusetts, if it does go into the republican column, what do they have in common? one thing, independence. democrats and republicans voted with their party but independents are marching in massive numbers towards the republican candidate. and that's the thing that you people have in common. they want to say that's an aberration
this complaint when the president of united states gives an extra day for christmas. some people suggest that we will give kiran a day. he will give him a commemorative day. make a sunday. st. patrick's day is not a paid holiday and i am sure the irish would like to have a st. patrick's day as a paid holiday. there was an amendment added to one of the pieces of legislation that said that we will have a king holiday, but it will be a sunday. at that point, the legislation was withdrawn rather than having them attached. it was also argued that the holiday was too close to christmas and new year's holidays, giving people too much time off. the compromise that was agreed to was that what we will do is that instead of having it on january 15, we would have it on the third monday in january. through all the debates and delay is and the tactics -- of delays and the tactics, the cdc stood firm. its members dedicated themselves to memorializing dr. king's legacy with a holiday. finally, on august of 1983, the house passed the bill but they had to get past the senate side. at that time, there was the 20th
